Azilina “Azia” Cross
Azia lives two lives. Most people know her as the quiet girl with white hair that lives with a foster parent. However, at night she is a monster hunter in training. Her parents are both well known monster hunters that have gone missing five years ago. Azia has made it her mission to follow their trail while training to also be a great monster hunter. Her closest friend is her family familiar, Jax, who has been training her. Azia is an independent girl that may be socially awkward and a bit scatter-brained, but she is kind, humble, and hard working.
Nearly all hunter families have a low-ranking class of monster as their familiar. Jax has been the Cross family familiar for generations. He been at Azia’s side since her parents disappeared. He assists in tracking and identifying monsters. Despite reservations he’s been training Azia to hunt due to her resistance to contact the Council.
The Venatores Council
Established centuries ago, the Venatores Council is a secret organization that has been training hunters and keeping normal societies from collapsing under rampant monster feasting. They are an autonomous entity ruled by a long lineage of founding families. They maintain a tight grip on hunters from regulating training, organizing, deploying, and managing hunters all around the world. Not much is known about their history. Many cells are kept separate to lessen compromise. But they know their mission is crucial to humanities survival and will stop at nothing to accomplish their goals.
